It seems that Twitch have started testing a brand new feature that will allow for streamers to share a selection of Amazon Prime Video content with their viewers.

This new feature is called 'Watch Parties' and according to an email sent to Travis Shreffler, a content creator and author, Prime Video has asked him to test this new feature that will allow for selection of Prime Video and movies to be shared on his channel while he is streaming.

The email also says that this feature will only be available for viewers who already have Prime Video, and to kick off the new feature Amazon will be making Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Pokemon available. Amazon also says that after some more testing time they will continue to add more titles to service, but for the time being it will only be available in the US and with the previously mentioned titles.
